Herpes is a contagious infection triggered by different types of viruses, called Herpesviruses. There are different forms of herpes, such as Herpes simplex, Herpes zoster or shingles and cytomegaloviruses. The first symptom of Herpes is the appearance of cutaneous vesicles, which can appear on the lips (Herpes labialis), on the genitals (Herpes genitalis) or on parts of the extended body (Sant'Antonio fire or Herpes zoster).

Herpes can be prevented by strengthening the immune system and reducing possible risk factors, such as stress. If the preventive treatment fails, the only remedy is medical therapy using antiviral drugs; in general, however, the disease is self-limiting, which means that it tends to resolve spontaneously, even if the risk of recurrence remains high.
